“Inner Thoughts, Outer Reflections” is the graduate collection by Ailbhe. Based on her compulsive practice of keeping a visual diary, the designer explores her mental process through print and stitch. Each of the dresses has a different mind-map, the “Before I Die”, “What I Miss about Home”, and “What I’m Feeling” dresses all explore Ailbhe’s feelings through humorous illustrations and thought bubbles. The collection aims to portray emotion through clothing by combining the mind maps with unique silhouette shapes created by embroidery hoop structures.
